This is the morning the true mystery of Jesus began. It is the foundation of our faith – the expectation that we all believe and trust that He is risen. Think how much easier it would have been if He would have simply reappeared before Pilate. How different would the following 2,000 years have been?
Yet, that is not what we were asked to accept. He appeared sparsely, to friends and followers to assure us all that He had, indeed, conquered death, completed his role in our salvation and He asked that we follow. He was not to be a leader in the earthly sense – but a doorway, a path, a means to our salvation. Something simply beyond our understanding. Something that could only be accepted through our faith.
A lot to ponder for a simple human.
Enjoy your day, your family and friends, your relationship with Him. Please take just a few moments in silent reflection of the gift this last 40 days has represented . . . . a mystery that saves our souls . . . .
Have a great day everyone!
